ego consciousness: It is the seventh consciousness or innate attachment to self that is the basis of our continued rebirth—the defiling mind-consciousness. It has two aspects: the immediate consciousness that monitors the other consciousnesses making them continuous and enables us to function in the material world of ordinary (relative) reality or “conditioned existence” and the klesha consciousness which is the continuous presence of self. Also called afflicted consciousness.
